Stampin’ Up Thank you card

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks with Ornate Layers Dies

April 13, 2020

Happy Monday morning, peeps!

I had fun pulling out some pretty colors from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper on this card along with a lot of other fun items in the Ornate Garden Suite.

A sneak peek on the DSP package says it has BumbleBee as a color…I am thinking it is the inside of the white flowers. I thought the lighter yellow colored flowers by the white ones looked like So Saffron so I used that as my card stock to die cut the Ornate Layer. I Iayered it on top of a Whisper White Stitched Rectangle embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Do you like the Pear Pizzazz borders on the top and bottom of the DSP? I die cut the DSP with a Stitched Rectangle that fit inside the Ornate Layer. I then stamped the sentiments on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and die cut each one the same size layering just the one edge on either the top or bottom of the rectangle I die cut the DSP with. Then I layered them on the Stitched Rectangle DSP so it looked like it was part of the rectangle.

*As I always do with the Stitched Rectangle Dies, I cut the width of my card base to 4-1/8″.

So many pretties to play with in the Ornate Garden Suite!

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals

December 9, 2019

We had our Path of Petals Product Class this past weekend and made three cards.
You can see them below and go to the posts by pressing on the photos.

I also showed them a bright and cheerful card I made at my last Shoebox Swap.
The card was designed by Karen Coad.

It was a welcome burst of color in my stamp room. I will get the measurements posted of the DSP once the card is unpacked from my trip. I always want to know the measurements when I see a card like this, don’t you? Sorry I forgot to write them down:( This stamp set is one you have to play with until you get it just right but it is forgiving if you are not spot on. Just get some scrap and play around. I found it easiest to stamp the green stem/leaves first, then the Rococo Rose flowers, and then the Daffodil Delight weedy looking things last. The only reason I got this card done pretty nicely at the swap is I had just worked with this set for my class!

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals

November 4, 2019

My mom needed a thank you card for a person who LOVES flowers so I pulled out my Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Bundle. I think I fulfilled her request with this card:)

There are so many colors to work with in this pattern in the  Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. I was happy to use my Rococo Rose ink and Scalloped Linen Ribbon. I did use Old Olive as my green even though Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow are listed on the package. I also used So Saffron as my yellow instead of Daffodil Delight ink. I used the Classic Label Punch to punch out the sentiment, and the slanted edges lined up nicely with the circle.

The DSP on the front of the card is 3-3/4″ x 5 with the Night of Navy border being 3-7/8 x 5-1/8. My first plan was to have a tight border around the DSP but it slid in the corner as I had it sitting on my desk. I kinda liked the look so I slid the DSP down into the right lower corner of the Night of Navy panel. I was trying to be crafty by not wrapping the ribbon on both sides of the DSP, I think it may look like I just ran out of ribbon…lol.

I added some of the DSP to the inside and kept a larger border like the front.
The inside panel is 3-3/4″ x 5″.
